Tokyo Disneyland moves toward re-opening

Update: Ikspiari re-opened today. That’s a mall area that’s essentially the Tokyo Disney Downtown Disney equivalent.

There’s still no date announced yet, but Tokyo Disney Resort has started moving toward a re-opening date for its resort hotels and theme parks. Their website still says a decision will be made soon, but many of the international cast that were sent home have been asked to return and restart rehearsals.

Even as the performers head back to Tokyo, more stories of what it was like to experience the quake are making into the news. Eva, a parade performer, was in the rehearsal hall when it struck, while Bethany was at home in her apartment.

While no official date for re-opening has been announced, April 1st was rumored to see at least one of the parks open. At this point that seems unlikely, but who knows. Many of the furloughed employees are receiving 60% of their pay while the park is closed.

Also, below the cut is another video showing some scary moments during the quake inside Tokyo DisneySea.

Lots of shaking in this one, so much that one of the speakers falls down. Also weird to see the performance on the water continue despite the shaking.

Good luck to all Tokyo Disney cast members.
